Castle of Legends

Unfortunately my camera is broken and I spend my time on re-processing old photos. Here is a picture three years old which is similar to an another one that I shared before. I learned a lot and developed my processing skills over time and I think this image is much better and shows nicely the view of the Lindisfarne Castle on the Holy Island; Northumberland, England. The castle is most distinct and picturesque feature of the island. Built in the 1500's, it sits romantically on the highest point of the island and can be seen for many miles around.

The Bridge

A stone bridge that links the sea cliffs to a sea stack at *Yesnaby* on the west coast of Orkney's mainland, Scotland. If you wonder whether it is possible to stand on the bridge, the answer is “yes” it is possible, I did it, but I would not recommend facing this challenge. Too scary experience. Rock bridge and jelly legs :-)

Hey, did you know I am also on Instagram?

Eagle's Path

I found this photo while I was clearing my hard drive from old and unwanted files. Initially, I wanted to remove it because I wasn’t sure if I like it. Eventually, I gave it a second chance and I processed it again. This is a shot which I took last year in Poland in the Tatra Mountains while hiking to Krzyżne peak (2112m) which is a starting point of Orla Perć - the most difficult and dangerous public path in the entire Tatras.

Flowers On the Beach

Stormy clouds passing above a vast area of the Seilebost beach. This beach was one of my favourite one amongst dozens of other which you can find on the Outer Hebrides in #Scotland. These colourful Sea Thrift flowers which colonised the beach created a superb foreground theme for my photo.

Luskentyre Sands

Outer Hebrides... they are just so photogenic! Plenty of amazing beaches, including Luskentyre, the largest and most spectacular beach on the Isle of Harris, which has been named the best beach in Great Britain and one of the best beaches in the world by TIME Magazine. It is famous for the beautiful white sand which runs for miles and the gorgeous green-blue waters lapping up onto its shores. Here is a view from Beinn Dhubh on a tranquil evening.

The Old Man and the Sea

An intense colourful sunset over The Old Man of Hoy (137m), an iconic image of Orkney, a symbol of the island. Separated from land by the erosive powers of sea and wind the stack was originally an arch with two “legs”, hence its name. Violent storms coming from the Atlantic Ocean literally washed away one of the legs leaving the single pillar. There is already a large crack running down from the top of the stack and many geologists believe that one day the Old Man will collapse into the sea.

Cliffs of the Orkney

[EN] Orkney is one of those places that you have to see to believe. Last weekend I experienced island life in all its peace, quiet and tranquillity. There was no music. No voices. No sound of cars in the distance. Just the wilderness. The sound of water against rocks, a bird chirping, a light of breeze… it was so peaceful and magical. And the wild camp atop of one of the highest vertical cliffs in the UK (St John’s Head - 346m) on the Isle of Hoy, with stunning views over the Pentland Firth and the Atlantic Ocean, was definitely the best part of the trip.

[PL] Orkady są jednym z tych miejsc, które po prostu trzeba zobaczyć na własne oczy. Niedawno miałem okazję spędzić tam parę dni, w oddali od zgiełku miejskiego, spalin i hałasu samochodów. Prawdziwie dzika natura z szumem fal morskich, śpiewającymi ptakami, kolorowymi zachodami słońca… spokojnie i magicznie. A dziki camping pod namiotem na jednych z najwyższych klifów w Wielkiej Brytanii (St John’s Head - 346m wysokości) na wyspie Hoy był zdecydowanie najwspanialszą częścią tej wyprawy. A wyglądało to tak:

Kiss of Light

[EN] The first rays of morning sun try to get through thick layer of clouds above one of the finest mountains in Scotland. The views from Stac Pollaidh over the ancient Assynt and Sutherland landscape are truly wonderful, no wonder people return here again and again.

[PL] Poranne promienie wschodzącego słońca z trudem próbują przedostać się przez gęstą wartwę chmur nad jedną z najbardziej malowniczych gór w szkockich Highlandach. Widoki ze szczytu Stac Pollaidh na Assynt i Shutherland są niesamowite, dlatego też ludzie bardzo chętnie wracają w to odległe i odludne miejsce.

I hope you like it / Mam nadzieję, że podoba się Wam to zdjęcie.

Winter in Glen Coe valley

[EN] A stormy sunset over frozen and snow-covered mountains of Glen Coe. On that evening everything seemed to be hibernated in the Highlands and even the colours in the sky were delicate and muted. I took this picture from the Devil’s Staircase, a part of the West Highland Way. Some parts of the footpath were covered in deep snow, almost half of my height. Hiking up was demanding but walking down after dusk was even more challenging. Luckily nothing serious happened :-)

[PL] Zachód słońca nad pokrytymi śniegiem górami w dolinie Glen Coe w Szkocji. Tego wieczoru wszystko zdawało się popaść w stan hibernacji, nawet kolory zachodzącego słońca zdawały się być wyciszone i łagodne. Poniższe zdjęcie wykonałem z “Diabelskich Schodów” (eng. Devil’s Staircase), które stanowią część West Highland Way, długiej na ponad 150km trasie dla miłośników wycieczek pieszych. Część schodów była pokryta grubą warstwą śniegu, która momentami stanowiła połowę mojego wzrostu. Wejście na górę było dość mozolne i wymagające, ale dopiero zejście po zmroku było wyzwaniem. Całe szczęście nic złego się nie wydarzyło :-)

Regards! / Pozdrawiam!
